In this webinar (~40 minutes) you will see how it’s possible to easily improve your existing enterprise monitoring solution with Control for i  product and “Plugin:

Control for i  is a product developed by IBM i people for IBM i people… but it also helps to reconcile with the team managing the company’s monitoring solution !!!

How ?

–          Based on IBM i commands (with many parameters) it is particularly easy for IBM i people to setup the checks*: no development required !

–          Once the controls validated on the IBM i, simply copy and paste the commands and its parameters into your favourite monitoring tool … just compile… and it works… Thanks to the Control for i plugin !

–          Now you just have to organise the checks in your monitoring tool with the monitoring team : schedule them, define the frequency and the service time range, decide on the severity level, specify the reaction to issues (email, SMS, alert), consider escalation actions, …

You will discover, how with Control for i you can :

  • implement 130+ probes/checks to control EVERYTHING running on IBM i: Applications, System, Messages, HA, EDI, Backups, Batches, ERP, Transfers, Database, Logs, …
  • automate the reply to messages in MSGQ
  • integrate existing self-developed controls in Control for i
  •  develop you new probes using the models provided (IBM i commands).

Hundreds of partitions are monitored with the help of Control for i’.

Existing customers appreciate:

  • accuracy of alert messages allowing fast and relevant reactions from helpdesk,
  • very low resource consumption on the IBM i avoiding false alerts,
  • ease of installation and use with minimizing time consumption,
  • price (licence + maintenance or monthly subscription) remaining cheap.

At the end, they are happy that IBM i is better monitored than other OS 😉!
